guys shaft does spin freer due to the lack of the parasitc drag of the belts although there is mechanical drag because of gears it is lesser because to hard surfaces create less friction then a soft and a hard surface. take a rubber band and rub it against a desk top and then take a pen (closed) and rub it across the desk which one causes more drag? no brainer guys.

True, my brother's TC3 rolls farther than my T1R. I know which one has the better accleration though (using the same equipment by the way), and it isn't the one you wish it was...

Well in my Demon i'm running composite bones and the composite diffs and mine still spins for 14 sec rubber, 9 foam. What does that tell you? Awesome, effortless acceleration? You betcha.

I wonder how good it'd spin with shiny CVDs and steel diffs, but then it'd accelerate like a pig

you ever counted 14 seconds on a clock.
its longer then you think.
maybe you got some bearings missing?
i very much doubt any car could go longer then about 6 secs.
aahh do you put a motor on,spin it up then take it off?
i could get a minute on my 8 double!

No trf, hand spun and no bearings missing.

Oh and BTW, i did count those 14 seconds on a clock, not in my head.

Just because you run lightweight stuff and can't get your car to spin that well doesn't mean others can't.

yeah i agree but i think that even 10secs is hard.
just my 2 cents worth.

my car can roll really really far when pushed, but has little rotating mass so i can only get 2-3 seconds of spin be hand.

My drivetrain wasn't free. It was included in the cost of my kit.

Is it belt driven? Shaft? My brand new T4 didn't spin for even 5 seconds but a friends awesomatix spun for about 8, the awesomatix has the smoothest drivetrain I've ever seen ( spun by hand ) but if pushed on the floor the t4 rolls pretty far

I've seen tc3's back in the day when we tried to get everything out of the motors and cars spin for around 1 minute. My Tamiya evo4 spun for 20 to 30 seconds easily. The shims are so important to achieve those kind of results.

We got the drive trains so free, that you could actually blow on the rim. And the drive train would spin.
